YOUNG PEOPLE’S POET LAUREATE OF LONDON
'FROM HERE' Acrylics on wood 78cm x 78cm / Digital Remix 2018
Proud to be a trustee of the 'BE MY NEXT INSPIRATION PROJECT' for The Young People’s Poet Laureate of London alongside heavyweights including Tim & Barry, Dan Buck Joyce, Sane Communications, Caleb Femi and Harris Elliott.
Zia Ahmed's words on his Identity and how he is perceived, led me to the classic question always asked.... "where are you from?" London. "No, where are you from from?"
Be My Next Inspiration recognises poetry as a craft that can inspire us all. It offers a chance to reflect on the city of today; it creates opportunities for unheard voices to be heard; and it allows us to notice what matters most, through the words of young Londoners.
